Harrison who spoke to the Holyhead Hotspur website said that he’s looking forward to seeing the youthful striker pulling on the colours of the Hotspurs.
“John is keen to get playing and can’t wait to pull on the Hotspur jersey. We look forward to welcoming him into a tight knit group of players who I feel will get the best out of him.”
Joining Littlemore at Holyhead next season will be returning defender Reece Brown who returns after a few years away from the club.
Brown was part of the youth academy at Holyhead and after leaving the club, won the Welsh Alliance title with Treaddur Bay.
Both players have featured for the Ynys Mon squad which will be taking part in the Island Games. It will mean that there will be a strong contingent of Holyhead Hotspur players representing Ynys Mon, with no more than SEVEN players coming from Holyhead Hotspur.
Both Litrlemore and Brown will join Alex Jones, Mike Kelly, Kenleigh Owen, Brendun Hogan and Paul Pritchard as they travel to Gotland, Sweden to take part in the Island Games, which are an Island Olympics,.
